PYA to launch Webinar on Yachting in the Bahamas with the BWA

30 October 2023

This November, the PYA will launch a webinar with the BWA to discuss important seafaring issues specific to the Bahamas and surrounding island communities.


The Bahamas is considered one of the world’s most seductive yachting destinations, offering more than 700 breath-taking islands and cays to explore, both for those seeking an adventurous yachting vacation or one of total seclusion.


“We are welcoming a host of guest speakers from across the yachting industry to take part in this important conversation on yachting in the Bahamas. Attendees will be able to learn about industry-specific issues by getting involved in this conversation and sharing various perspectives,” said Kim Llorente, Operations Manager for the PYA.

BWA Yachting is a worldwide yacht agency and yachting services provider set up to support captains, managers and crew - making their lives easier and assisting with the increasing demands of managing a modern superyacht. Their global office network stretches throughout the Mediterranean, Northern Europe, the Caribbean and the Americas, providing a unique and seamless experience, wherever clients are cruising.

We want to say a big thank you to BWA and all our guest speakers for supporting our latest webinar and taking part in this year’s discussion centred on the Bahamas.


Guest speakers


  • Daniel Persaud: Operations Manager at BWA Yachting Bahamas

  • Chrislyn Stubbs: crew member and operator of Palm Winds (shore support)
